Proposed move of Moorfields Eye Hospital’s City Road services
The proposal to move Moorfields Eye Hospital, University College London’s Institute of Opthalmology and Moorfield’s Charity to a new site at St. Pancras in London has been approved.
Camden Clinical Commissioning Group on behalf of those CCGs across England that commission services from Moorfields City Road site, in partnership with NHS England/Improvement Specialised Commissioning (London), consulted between 24 May and 16 September 2019 on a proposal to relocate services from Moorfields Eye Hospital’s City Road site to St Pancras. This new-build centre will bring together excellent eye care, ground-breaking research and world-leading education in ophthalmology.
This project will be a partnership between Moorfields Eye Hospital and University College London (UCL) Institute of Ophthalmology (IoO). Moorfields Eye Hospital and UCL will sell the current land at City Road, and all proceeds of the sale will be reinvested in a multi-million pound development on land available at the site of St Pancras Hospital, just north of King’s Cross and St Pancras stations in central London.
During the consultation around 4,600 contributions were received, of which 1,511 were completed consultation surveys. People also gave their feedback in other ways including emails, discussion groups, phone calls, letters and via the virtual assistant on the consultation’s website.
